Ok I figured out where I was making the mistake, instead of launching
X session from tty7 I was first logging in to tty1 and then launching
an X session.
Can you explain why it closes the session when I return back to tty7
but it will not when I launch an X session from the console in tty7.
When using xfce, I cannot launch the Terminal due to an input/output error?
What might be causing this?
Thanks once again for posting the instructions.
